CHEESE TORTELLINI IN GARLIC BUTTER SAUCE

An easy, delicious recipe for Cheese Tortellini in garlic butter sauce. Whether you want a hot appetizer for a party or a tasty, comforting weeknight meal option, double the batch because everyone is going to love it! Use refrigerated or frozen cheese tortellini; either way, it’s ready in 15 minutes or less!

Although I typically purchase low-sodium chicken broth and unsalted butter, this particular recipe tasted a little off when I tested with those ingredients.

So, in this one instance I do not recommend the low-sodium options.  If that’s what you have, just add a little salt to the finished dish until it tastes perfect.

Ingredients

  • 32 ounces chicken broth divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen cheese tortellini
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese for garnish
  • fresh parsley minced, for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, bring 2 ½ cups broth to a boil. Add cheese tortellini. Return to a boil and cook about 5 minutes. The tortellini will float to the top when cooked and the internal temperature should be 165ºF for at least 15 seconds. Drain completely.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining 1 ½ cups broth with corn starch. In a large non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat until foaming. Stir in garlic and basil and cook about 2 minutes.
  3. Add broth-cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil; simmer until the mixture thickens. Add the cooked tortellini to the skillet and toss to coat.
  4. Pour into a serving dish and garnish with Parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • To make this dish vegetarian, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
  • Serves 8 as an appetizer or first course. Keep warm in a slow cooker if serving a buffet.
